The grand Tori Gate of the Itsukushima shrine in Miyajima is fully covered now with scaffold due to its repair work as it has been more than 140 years since the present 8th gate was erected in 1875. The completion time has not been informed yet. However what Miyajima has is not only the Tori Gate. 14 % of the whole island was designated as a UNESCO world heritage site. The gate is just part of it and I believe you still cannot miss this beautiful island even the gate itself is covered unfortunately. Thanks for your understanding.

“ Wonderful day in Hiroshima! ”

We had a wonderful day in Hiroshima. Mayumi is wonderful-she shares a wealth of knowledge both on the sites we visited and how to get there. This has been one of the best tour experiences I’ve ever had. I highly recommend Mayumi!!

MAYUMI:

Dear Meri, I appreciate your wonderful review. I was forever grateful that you were able to come to Japan and Hiroshima to share your time and joy wth us. Now we have a difficult time and many sites & facilities are shut down, though. I hope you will have good memories in Japan and come back to fully enjoy next time. Again I was so touched by your consideration and thoughtfulness. Please give my best regards to your son and friends. Thank you very much. Mayumi

“ A wonderful with Mayumi ”

My wife and I spent a wonderful day with Mayumi at Miyajima and Peace Park. We were blessed with good weather (despite earlier rain forecast), and more importantly, informative, understanding and helpful guide. We have been to both places previously on our own many years ago. However, with Mayumi as our guide, we felt like we were visiting them for the very first time! Should we return to Hiroshima again, we will certainly engage her as our guide again!

MAYUMI:

Dear Yean san. I appreciate the awesome review you kindly left. I couldn’t be happier. The day I spent with you was surely memorable and joyful. It felt on the auspicious first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, which made it more special for you. I was honored that I could be with you and your gracious wife on that special day. I was also very grateful for everything you two kindly did for me. May every day of the New Year brings you sweet surprises that fill your life with happiness. With gratitude, Mayumi

“ Loved Rabbit Island and was able to stop at ”

Had a wonderful day with Mayumi. She was so helpful and patient. She worked very hard to do everything I asked and more. I really enjoyed talking to her and learned a lot. She is very knowledgeable and a lot of fun! We went to Rabbit Island and talked a lot on the way over and back. I know I was an unusual client since I am quite old and still asked to go to Rabbit Island. :) She packed a LOT into one day for me. It is a day I will remember always. Thanks Mayumi. I hope I can return to Hiroshima some day to do some more sightseeing. I did not have time to see everything. I need to return.

MAYUMI:

Dear Carol, I thank you so much for the excellent review you kindly posted! I am very happy you loved the tour with me. I also loved the wonderful time spent with you. There is a famous Japanese idiom which describes a cultural concept of treasuring the unrepeatable nature of a moment; Ichi-go, Ichi-e. It can be translated as " once in a life time" or " treasure every meeting as it may not come again". However I can’t wait to have you back here, Lol. Wish you great health, happiness and successful business. Best. Mayumi

“ Mayumi is fantastic ”

We had a very memorable day with Mayumi, who was most generous to make herself available on New Year’s Day for us. Her insights and connection to Hiroshima and its history made the day much more interesting, and helping to navigate Miyajima island on such a busy day of the year was invaluable. We would highly recommend her.

MAYUMI:

Dear David, I thank you very much for such a nice review. We just opened the book which pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book's first chapter is New Year’s Day and I was fortunate I spent great time with you to start with. Happy New Year! Best, Mayumi
